Paintings Painting in Oil. I have been an artist since college taking art education, which gave me a broad experience in many mediums. I dappled a bit in oil painting, but moved 100 % to pottery when a got an apprenticeship with Cleo Reed in 1972. This has given me a good foundation in design, creativeness, willingness to try new types of media, and especially to hone my skills. Pottery is the majority of my website. So oil is a new adventure for me. I started in January 2019. I have studied with Robert Seufert until Covid 19 closed much of our nation down, March 2020. Bob suspended classes. So I painted solo for awhile. I picked up one at Artists of Yardley with Anne Gannon in Sept. 2020. I am still her student. Anne, too, has a well-deserved art reputation. I am still her student. I like to try various subject matter. I do this also in my pottery. I need variety to express my ideas in each medium and to gain skill. Oil takes time to dry between layers, so the colors are true to what the brush lays down. Knowing this, I work two canvases at a time, allowing for the paint to dry enough to proceed with each. This is my first painting, of many now. It is not for sale.

Lure Lake Creek

Vacationing in North Carolina a couple years ago, I came across this creek. The fall colors played on the scene. I took many pictures. This is such a beautiful spot. I painted this one with the palette knife, with just slight touches of color for the leaves done with a brush.

Canvas 14″ x 11″ x 1″ Oil on canvas, varnished, framed

Additional DescriptionMore Details

This is framed with what’s called a shadow frame. It has a double frame look. The front of the painting sets level to the widest part of the frame. The inset is level with the back showing the narrow painted edges of the canvas. Nice simple frame making the painting itself stand out.

Washington Crossing Bridge

The current iconic Washington Crossing Bridge was built in 1904 replacing earlier versions which were wooden and sweep away during floods. This bridge has had several repairs though these many years. It is narrow and can be a challenge to cross for a wider vehicle. The waters traveling under make an idyllic picture to paint. I’m sure it has been done many, many times. This is my interpretation of it.

 

oil painting on canvas, 14″ x 11″

Additional DescriptionMore Details

How many times have I crossed this bridge? I don’t dared to count. One tucks in the rear view mirrors and drives slowly across. My joke is always the same. “Why did Washington cross in boats when there is a perfectly good bridge here!” LOL.
